Explore something new
Movies with popcorn, cooking classes, musical entertainment, and of course, BINGO, the Activities Department is at the heart of it all, encouraging socialization, exploration, and enjoyment.
Make new friends, try something new
Variety is the spice of life. We take a multi-faceted approach, offering a wide variety of activities in a wide variety of settings. From our unique intergenerational program to our partnerships with area colleges and universities, we are able to provide both meaningful and entertaining experiences.
Located on Main Street, the Activities Center offers opportunities for people to get acquainted with people from other cottages and neighborhoods.
Baking or cooking classes, arts and crafts, and hosting guest speakers are among just a few of the activities hosted in the Activities Center.
Activities may also take place in our Meditation Suite, in one of our neighborhoods, or in smaller settings in our many cottages.
The Activities Department truly offers something for everyone, including
- Holiday celebrations
- Cooking & baking classes
- Arts & crafts
- Musical entertainment
- Exercise classes
- Religious/spiritual services
- Excursions and day trips
A monthly activities calendar is provided to every resident and is posted in each neighborhood. Suggestions for new activities are always welcome.
